Building the Next Generation of Skilled Labors
Construction is one of the nation’s largest industries, with over 7 million wage and salary jobs and 1.9 million self-employed workers. Over the past decade the construction industry has been hit with a rapidly increasing skilled labor shortage. Due to this shortage, Martin Concrete has tried to think outside the box for a solution. One of Martin’s unique approaches to this issue was teaming up with local high schools that have construction academies and/or programs by speaking at these schools about the benefits of entering the construction trade.
